My dear fellow travelers,
Throughout my travels these past few years, one scene has played over and over. I am standing in a closet-like hostel kitchen, sweating and toiling to put the final touches on a cheap and hearty meal and I look over and see a group of dedicated travel chefs preparing an amazing looking stew or a crème brulee or some other hostel oddity that makes my spaghetti and canned tomato sauce look so sad and lonely.
To this end, I thought it would be a great idea to tap into this pool of cooking genius, for everyone’s sake (and yes, mine too). I am currently working on publishing a backpackers’ recipe book, with the idea of compiling short recipes that any backpacker can make quickly with limited resources and hopefully local ingredients. I want your recipe- a chance to get your recipe and name published.
Here are the criteria:
It cannot use more than 10 ingredients, spices included.
It must not be too resource-heavy. In other words, any fellow backpacker should be able to make it with limited kitchen utensils, pots, pans, and TIME. We all understand what some hostel kitchens are like, so just keep this in mind.
It can be representative of the place where you are cooking (aka use local ingredients) or your home country. Just make it quick, easy and cheap.
To submit a recipe, please email me through this thread, website or at -snip- and include the recipe, its title, your full name, home country, and contact information. If the recipe is location-specific (eg Pilar’s Peruvian Papas) please mention this, and also the total cost of the ingredients in local currency. This is not a necessity but would be helpful. Thank you and bon appetit!
